“Making a street painting is a lot like constructing a sand castle: while working on one part, another part is eroding… Street painting is a constant reminder that art is about process rather than product.” — Kurt Wenner
ASPHALT RENAISSANCE brilliantly recounts the creation of 3D pavement art by innovative artist and Internet sensation Kurt Wenner. Wenner revolutionized this ancient art by inventing a unique technique that produces astounding 3D images that appear to reach out of the pavement toward the viewer and seem perilously deep. Featuring photographs of hundreds of his paintings, this volume spans Wenner’s career and captures his thoughts on art and the ephemeral nature of his work. Includes a free poster!
